The trial of a Canadian actress accused of stalking Alec Baldwin has been postponed.

Genevieve Sabourin, who appeared in a Manhattan court on Monday, rejected a plea deal and hired a new lawyer, so her trial date was postponed until May 13.

Sabourin and Baldwin met on the set of the 2002 sci-fi comedy The Adventures Of Pluto Nash. Baldwin says they had dinner together in 2010.

Authorities say Sabourin had implored Baldwin to see and to marry her and sent him emails only days after he became engaged to yoga instructor Hilaria Thomas.

Sabourin later spent a night in jail after she was accused of sending Ms Thomas a Twitter message.

Baldwin and Thomas, now married, are expecting their first child together.
